Archival materials, microform, audio and video are just a few of the other formats that can be digitized and displayed online.
||Create and upload high-quality JP2000 images; persistent identifiers, 25 year of hosting of files and management of file system and file access.
||Create high quality PDF A files; run OCR across texts to allow "search inside" all books. Add to Internet Archive search engine; display via our open source Book Reader.
